NZ Post Children’s Book Awards Canterbury Festival

The week long celebration of the 2011 New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards kicks off on Monday 9 May and runs until 17 May.  The New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards Festival is run throughout the country and it’s a great chance for you to celebrate the finalist’s in this year’s Awards.

Here in Canterbury we have a fantastic programme of events throughout the week, including storytelling at the Christchurch Farmer’s Market and a tour around the native bush of Riccarton Bush on Saturday 14 May, some visits to Canterbury schools by finalist author, Kyle Mewburn, and some cool competitions that you can enter.  Your school might even be celebrating by joining The Big Read on Wednesday 11 May.  Make sure you enter our festival competitions for your chance to win some of the finalist books.
